With summer coming to a close, I am starting to say my farewells to neons and bold colours and saying hello to more patterns and monochrome pieces. This post is all about how to style patterns and how to keep them simple. Many are scared off by bold patterned clothing and prefer to go for the ‘basics’ which I can never understand.
I have listed above what I have styled this coat with for a day time look and also a night as it is very versatile. It is such a quirky piece that I don’t see many people wearing, I feel this is such a good trend for it coming into autumn, keeping a part of summer wear with blazers in and keeping a bit of winter wear with a coat - I would go more for the black or white plain one however I’m loving this pattern. Only downside is I cant go crazy with other patterns with it incase they clash, so for this occasion I am keeping “ simplicity “ in mind. – For accessories I normally don’t like to drown my clothing in them as it takes away from the outfit itself so i have stuck to this, im loving how simple and casual the outfit is, i didnt need to drown it in a statement necklace or earrings and bangles because i have my fedora hat doing all the talking. For a casual version i have added some nike air max im seeing a lot of people doing this now, some smart trousers with trainers, this sounds like my worst nightmare but it does work with certain things so experiment! - for a more out/night look i have added some pointed and of course white heels, why not do it all white.

Ok, so this feature isnt actually denim on denim, not sure who can successfully pull that off but i wont be trying any time soon. This post is all about denim, i will be featuring 2 pairs of amazing high waisted jeans and showing you how to style them for day and for night. Brought to you by a new up and coming online retailer Celeb look - i am forever mentioning this in my posts because i look out for new websites as i love being part of their growth and success.
OUTFIT ONE. White high waisted jeans - styled with many beautiful tops/blazers as seen below - White bandage top, duster coat, dog tooth print crop top, white blazer, designer names tee. Some casual outfits perfect for any occasion - showing these jeans are sooooo versatile for no matter your occasion fancy or casual - heels or trainers it all goes, A MUST BUY.
Obsesssssssed with the white jeans, something i always avoided as i am a tan addict and wear a lot of make up so i never really seen the point in spending a lot of money on a pair of jeans that i just had to look at to get a stain on them, but now ive wore this high waisted pair from celeb look i really wish i had bought myself a pair long time ago!!Loving an all white outfit if only my tan was natural as i was a nervous wreck when shooting these looks. - Recreate this look from Celeb Look
